The Program: Overview

Ways to Create a Custom Diet Plan, With Atkins

Track #1 - Fast Track

Lose most of your weight in the first Phase (Kick-Start) of the program.

Track #2 - Slow & Steady

Move quickly through the first Phase, begin to introduce greater food variety, and lose most of your weight in the second Phase (Balancing).

How to choose your track:

If you’re motivated by quick weight loss and thrive on structure and a minimum of choices, you may choose to stay in Phase 1 beyond two weeks. This is called the Fast Track.
  • Fast Track pros: Speedier weight loss, greater structure, and fewer choices, meaning fewer opportunities for temptation.
  • Fast Track cons: Boredom; no options for moving past a plateau without reducing Net Carbs below the recommended level, which can be extremely frustrating and demotivating.
If you’re comfortable with a slower, steadier rate of weight loss, after two weeks (or a few more) start to climb the Carb Ladder. This is called Slow and Steady.
  • Slow and Steady pros: More variety in what you can eat; more options for moving past a plateau because you can always return to a lower level of carb intake; easier segue to a sustainable way of eating.
  • Slow and Steady cons: Slightly slower weight loss; having more food choices may be too tempting or confusing.
